From staff reports
St. Patrick Church in Franklin will begin its regular weekend Masses at 4:30 p.m. Saturday and 8 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. Sunday.
The following changes will be in effect:
— All parishioners are asked to enter through the center doors and use the sanitizer that is provided before Mass begins. The handicap ramp is accessible for those needing to use it.
— A family that has been living together during the coronavirus crisis may sit together as a family. Social distance seating will be in effect for those who come to Mass by themselves.
— Masks must be worn at all times when parishioners are in the church, except for the reception of the Holy Eucharist. Anyone who doesn’t come with a mask won’t be permitted to enter the church.
The sacrament of reconciliation will also return to its regularly scheduled time of 3 to 4:15 p.m. Saturday. Social distancing while waiting in line is expected.
St. Patrick is asking for patience from parishioners as adjustments may have to be made.
